    i think your biggest "negative" is being a white female from New Jersey. As I understand it, BC makes a big deal about diversity, and strives hard to include representation from all groups- racial, religious, geographic, socioeconomic, etc. They get a ton of apps from New England, ny and nj. I know of a young man who applied to BC last year and got in, while he was rejected from other, equally or more competetive colleges. He is an African American male from Lousiana!! Good Luck-- a lot of really smart kids don't get into BC- and to be quite frank, their admissions process has, so far, has not been impressive. People not answering email, etc. Anyway, GOOD LUCK- I think you def have a chance!
